It will be interesting to see how the elected officials who pushed for this, who voted for this, who promoted this monstrosity as *not* being a tax, will now explain how SCOTUS allowed it to stand, only because it *is* a tax. It could not stand under the commerce clause, but with the power of . . . → Read More: Obamacare

Thailand Food Help

If you’ve followed any of our recent prayer requests, you know that there has been food donated for the Thai people that had been sitting for months on the docks.

Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say – Telegraph

“Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say”

Here’s the logical end that the pro-abortion, pro-choice mentality of this world is taking us. We who are believers in Jesus Christ, and/or who believe in the sanctity of every human life, whether conceived by rape, incest or is endangering the life of the mother, should ask . . . → Read More: Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say – Telegraph

January 22, 1973

What does this day mean to you? Well, to over 50,000,000 preborn babies it has meant death! And for many of them, horrible death. Death by dismemberment. Death by burning (as in saline abortions). Death by having their skulls crushed (as in partial-birth abortion). Death by neglect, when they are delivered still alive, and are . . . → Read More: January 22, 1973

The Time of Harvest

Most of the harvest in the Gallatin Valley has been gathered in: hay, grains and garden produce. The harvest workers had to contend with rain, wind, hail, etc., in order to complete their work. There is no alternative. You either get the harvest in or lose it.

But there is another ongoing harvest . . . → Read More: The Time of Harvest

The Lord’s Message Was Himself

Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread; He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light; He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door; He said, "I am the door." He did not come merely to name a shepherd; He said, "I am the shepherd." He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
--J. Sidlow Baxter (1903-1999, Australian born pastor and theologian who authored as many as thirty books)

The Beginning of Coldness in the Heart

"Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together," is a most important exhortation.
Even if we should not derive any especial benefit, at the time, so far as we are
conscious, yet we may be kept from much harm. And very frequently the beginning
of coldness of heart is nourished by keeping away from the meetings of the saints.
-- George Muller

Freedom & Extinction

I came across this profound quote of President Ronald Reagan that is worth sharing:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 24, 2011

Why should we here in the U.S.A. be thankful? "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endures forever." And we are told in the Bible, "It is He that made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Let's not allow ourselves to fall below the level of animals as did the people of God addressed in Isaiah 1: "The ox knows his owner, and the donkey its master's manger; but Israel does not know, my people do not consider." Take time to thank the Lord for all that He does. And if you have not yet received the gift of eternal life, you may do so by accepting it as a free gift paid for by the precious blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become sons of God"
